My pdoc put me on quitiapine about 8 weeks ago and i am on 150 mg at night. my question is does anyone get restless jumpy legs about 1 hour after taking their meds?

smack bang almost to the minute! I am also the same at night. I find splitting my dose and taking an hr or 2 apart helps. also walking around does.

Its really hideous though isnt it!

Yep it did something similar to me, not so much restless legs but couldn't sit still, keep my fingers/hands still etc. It was very frustrating to the point of tears but it got better after I got the extended release version.

Yep, I take 300mg of Quetiapine and I find my left leg goes a bit wonky after an hour or so. It feels like a mix between a dead leg and restless legs. It's really difficult to get comfortable.

I don't get a twitch in my leg, but I do get a twitch on my face, close to my mouth, and sometimes I stutter. This can happen any time of day, and never happened before going on Quetiapine. But the worst thing about it for me is the weight gain.

I used to be on Quetiapine and had the strange leg effects. The weight gain was also an issue.

Trigger warning

My friend suffered the same on the drug. I didn't, but when they came to take me off it I had a severe reaction and took a massive o/d only just here.
